About Jenny de Fine Licht


PhD in Political Science and Associate Professor in Public Administration.

Research interests

Transparency/openness in decision-making, Legitimacy and trust, auditing.

Current research

In my dissertation I explored how transparency in political decision-making affects public acceptance of political decisions and trust in decision-makers and their institutions. My primary case was priority setting in publicly funded health care.

Currently, I am project leader of "Justifying har decisions - a necessary evil in representative decision making."
